Travel advice for Scotland v Norway at Hampden Park

Last updated: Tuesday, 14 November 2023

ScotRail has issued travel advice ahead of Scotland’s Euro 2024 qualifier at Hampden Park this weekend.

The men’s national team host Norway on Sunday, 19 November at 7.45pm, and to help fans travel to the match, the train operator is adding more seats and services to and from Mount Florida, the closest station to Hampden.

Services are expected to be busier than normal, with the Christmas light switch on also taking place at George Square in Glasgow.

Supporters heading to the game are advised to plan ahead, allow additional time for travel, and be patient while ScotRail staff help people board trains safely.

Fans are advised that queuing systems will be in place at Glasgow Central before the games, and at Mount Florida station after the final whistle.

To reduce the need to queue, customers are encouraged buy their return tickets to Mount Florida in advance via the mTicket system on the ScotRail app.

Buying tickets through the mTicket system means fans can buy their tickets from the comfort of their home or on the way to the station and it will instantly become available on their mobile device.

After the final whistle, ScotRail is asking supporters to head back to Mount Florida as quickly as possible and join the queue on Bolton Drive. Access between the station and Battlefield Road, and the car park at Langside college, will be restricted after the match.

Customers travelling to destinations outwith the central belt when the game ends are also advised to consider their options as services wind down earlier on Sunday evenings.

Everyone is reminded that the carrying and consumption of alcohol is prohibited on ScotRail trains and in ScotRail stations.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail Customer Operations Director, said:

“We’re looking forward to helping fans travel by train to watch the Scotland men’s national team play Norway at Hampden on Sunday night.

“We’re adding more trains and extra carriages to trains between Glasgow Central and Mount Florida to help supporters travel to and from the match.

“Our advice to customers is to leave extra time for travel as trains are likely to be busier than normal with the Glasgow Christmas light switch on also taking place. Buying return tickets to before you board will help your journey run smoothly.”
